I received invitation from RCM but did not attend.

When I purchased Carousel Coin today at Canada Post Main Office. I asked if credit of purchasing RCM product can be use toward RCM MC account.
The answer from CP staff was NO.
Only the biggest CP outlets that specifically partner with RCM can credit towards MC. I think there's only a handful in the whole country.

Interesting to see how the price raised from USD$236 to USD$301 then soldout.

Price on White Horse might reaches max when 2nd coin of Apocalypse Series releases next year.

Glad several RFD’ers ordered White Horse Coin before price increased. ( The Coin Shoppe started @ USD$236 )

That's funny, I bought at the Vancouver Main Post Office several times already and the amounts shows up at my MC account. Not right away but weeks later. One time the clerk even asked me if I was a MC member. So I gave my MC# and they wrote it on a copy of the bill. A person then inputs all the receipts to the MC accounts once a month.

Maybe you asked the wrong question.
Have a nice day!

Interesting.

When I bought 2pcs Carousel Coin in CP Main Office yesterday. Before signing credit card slip, I asked the staff:

“I am RCM’s Master Club member, would you please add credit on this purchase toward my RCM MC membership? “

CP staff in Main Office told me that Canada Post and Royal Canadian Mint are 2 separate entities. Buying RCM coins in CP can not be used toward accumulation of RCM’s MC status.

When I dropped by on Tuesday, they had 2 of them. Interestingly, when I spoke to the clerk, she told me there was a Master Club event at the Post Office featuring the Carousel coin, a week or 2 ago, where MC members were had the opportunity to see and buy the coin.

The question I have, anyone invited to that event? I did not get any emails with an invite. Also, if there was a Master Club Event for the Carousel Coin in Vancouver, there must be ones in Ottawa and Winnipeg where they have Mint Boutiques. Anyone got one at those boutiques?
I did not get an invite... but I also have not bought anything in a while.

Maybe that clerk was not aware...

I got a consolation prize today for missing out on TSC Carousel yesterday. Was in the right place at the right time. Thought it was a mistake at first.

Bought Poseidon Coin for $331CAD shipped from Direct Coins. Sold out within a couple of minutes.
